Theoretical Study of Eley-Rideal Mechanism on Nitrogen Recombination over Tungsten (110)
Quasiclassical trajectories simulations are performed to study the recombiantion of Nitrogen molecules over W(110) surface. The efficiency of Eley-Rideal (ER) recombination reaction is compared with that reported on reference [Quintas et al. Rev. Cub. Fis. 27, 244 (2010)], where the ER reaction is analyzed over W(100) surface. As it has been already observed in other systems, ER reactivity increases as the interaction among the initially adsorbed atom and the substrate decreases. Over W(110) surface ER recombination probability is greater than the observed over W(100), specially at low collision energies.
